Welcome to our Macros guide for Warriors where you will find out what the best Macros are for your Warrior in The Burning Crusade Classic.



While this is not a complete list of every possible or useful macro available, we will show you some of the better macros available to help get you started. Check out the different sections below depending on your spec to find some useful macros to help improve your gameplay.


TBC Classic Warrior Macro Templates


Start Attack Macro

  • #showtooltip
  • /startattack
  • /cast Shield Slam

This is a standard "start attack" macro. You will want to replicate this on as many of your abilities as possible, such as Bloodthirst IconBloodthirst or Mortal Strike IconMortal Strike. This forces your character to begin attacking right away, even if you do not have the Rage to use any abilities yet.


Weapon Swapping Macro

  • #showtooltip
  • /stopcasting
  • /equipslot 16 Latro's Shifting Sword
  • /equipslot 17 Aldori Legacy Defender

This one is very useful to swap to whatever weapons you want quickly. Put the name of whatever weapon you choose after #showtooltip to see that on your bars. The /stopcasting part is needed so you can swap to your desired weapons instantly even if you have a Heroic Strike IconHeroic Strike or Cleave IconCleave queued up. Your Main Hand weapon slot is /equipslot 16 and your Off-Hand weapon slot is /equipslot 17. Change the names of the weapons to whichever you currently have.


Focus Target Macros

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [target=focus,exists,nodead] Pummel

This macro is great for having specific spells ready to fire on your focus target. This is especially useful in PvP for things like interrupts and stuns, but has uses in PvE as well. Replace "Pummel" with other spells as needed such as Intercept IconIntercept.


Shoot and Throw Macro

  • #showtooltip
  • /use Shoot
  • /use Throw

This macro is useful to combine both Shoot and Throw into one button. This is great if you frequently change between using different types of ranged weapons.


Mouseover Macro

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [target=mouseover,exists,nodead] Intervene; [help] Intervene; Intervene

Here we have a simple mouseover macro to Intervene IconIntervene to either our mouseover target, our target of target, or our target in that order. Mouse-over macros can be used for many different abilities; simply use the [target=mouseover] part with any other desired abilities.


Spell Reflection Macro

  • #showtooltip Spell Reflection
  • /stopcasting
  • /equipslot 16 Latro's Shifting Sword
  • /equipslot 17 Aldori Legacy Defender
  • /cast Spell Reflection

This macro will equip a One-Handed weapon and Shield of your choice on the first press, and on the second press you will use Spell Reflection IconSpell Reflection if you are in Battle Stance IconBattle Stance or Defensive Stance IconDefensive Stance. While it is also possible to include the option to change stances in the macro, it is not recommended as that might not also be the proper stance for the moment.


TBC Classic Warrior Addons

While macros are very important to your Warriors gameplay; Addons play just as key of a role, if not even bigger to your success. Check out our Addon guide section below for some very useful Warrior Addons.
